    I'd like to have some ancona ducklings...I have to hens with the black spots, but I'd like some in other colors does anyone know of a hatchery that has them?
    I have seen eggs on here but I'd prefer ducklings... [​IMG]

    Boondockers Farm has bought Holderread's Ancona flock. Cackle Hatchery and I believe Sand Hill Preservation have them as well.

    They are wonderful duckies !

    Thanks! I am already ordering chicks from cackle, the anconas come in more than one color from cackle? It kinda looks that way from the picture but I didn't see it om the page like the other to hatcheries stated. Has anyone ever ordered ducklings from cackle?

    My Anconas are from Cackle. Ordered them last year and all are still thriving. [​IMG] Two males and four females. They are black and white. Don't know if that is all they have but that is what I got. One also has a small crest.

    My black Swede and Pekin hen were feed store ducklings, but came from Cackle hatchery.

    My pekin is beautiful and in great health. Now my drake, he's not the best example of a Swede, but he is very healthy and very sweet. [​IMG]

    alright thanks, I've heard good things about cackle and they are only 3 hrs away and also had the breeds of chickens I wanted so when I order my ducks I'll get them from cackle to.
